RE: shear stength of #12 tek screw

Please don't try to use a TEKS screw in any location where it will see structural load.  These are generally case hardened and as such are succeptable to all sorts of nasty failure modes.  They were intended to fastener sheet product (with a few noteable exceptions) and not for structural use.
